Across all competitions, Witsel made 143 appearances for Borussia, scoring 13 goals and registering six assists. It had long been known that his expiring contract would not be extended. The player whom die Schwarzgelben once shelled out €20 million for in 2018 thus departs German football absent any renumeration for his Bundesliga club.
